    Special Events at the Ford Piquette

    Avenue Plant

  • Create a one of a kind event.


    Let the Ford Avenue Piquette Plant provide

    your event with a timeless backdrop—an

    urban industrial setting steeped in the past

    where guests can walk the same floors a

    young Henry Ford walked, sit in the driver’s

    seat of a Model T, and mingle where an

    invention that would forever change the world

    was born. It’s a setting that is signature Detroit

    and can be found nowhere else.

    Our Story. The Ford Avenue Piquette Plant was built in 1904 by the

    fledgling Ford Motor Company. It was here that Henry Ford

    would produce several car models- including his most famous

    automobile- the Model T. Once outside the plant’s walls,

    the Model T started a revolution that would put the world on

    wheels. When demand for the Model T exceeded the plant’s

    capabilities, Ford moved production over to the Highland Park

    Plant. The Piquette Avenue Plant was bought by Studebaker

    and then later used as a warehouse until it fell into almost total

    disuse in the 1990s- gradually becoming just another industrial

    building succumbing to the elements. In 2000, the Plant was

    saved through the work of members of the Henry Ford Heritage

    Association. It is now a National Historic Landmark that

    operates as a museum and learning center.
